November – December 2017 RESEARCH BULLETIN Hend Alqaderi, DDS, DMSc, lecturer on Oral Health Policy and Epidemiology, received an award from the Karam Foundation for, “Oral Health for Syrian Refugees.” e goals of the project are: To describe the oral health delivery system for Syrian refugees during the fleeing period and before appealing for asylum. To evaluate the oral health status for a given sample of Syrian refugees in Lowell, MA. To recommend efficient, cost effective oral health strategies as per the information collected and the needs of the population for the future. Alqaderi is working with Anubhuti Shukla, DMD student and Janice Cho, instructor in Oral Health Policy and Epidemiology, on this study. Roland Baron, DDS, PhD, professor and chair of Oral Medicine, Infection and Immunity, received an award from Radius Health, Inc. for “Comparison of the Osteocytic Responses to Abaloparitide versus Teriparatide: First Phase.” In this study, Baron will determine whether the differential effects of osteoporosis medications, Abaloparatide and Teriparatide, on bone resorption originate from different responses of the osteocytes to these two ligands.

hend alqaderi, DDs, DMsc, lecturer on Oral Health Policy and Epidemiology, received an award from the Karam Foundation for, “Oral Health for Syrian Refugees.” The goals of the project are: To describe the oral health delivery system for Syrian refugees during the fleeing period and before appealing for asylum. To evaluate the oral health status for a given sample of Syrian refugees in Lowell, MA.

To recommend efficient, cost effective oral health strategies as per the information collected and the needs of the population for the future. Alqaderi is working with Anubhuti Shukla, DMD student and Janice Cho, instructor in Oral Health Policy and Epidemiology, on this study.

Roland Baron, DDs, PhD, professor and chair of Oral Medicine, Infection and Immunity, received an award from Radius Health, Inc. for “Comparison of the Osteocytic Responses to Abaloparitide versus Teriparatide: First Phase.” In this study, Baron will determine whether the differential effects of osteoporosis medications, Abaloparatide and Teriparatide, on bone resorption

originate from different responses of the osteocytes to these two ligands.

shu-chi allison Yeh, PhD, research fellow in the Intini Lab, Oral Medicine, Infection and Immunity, received a 2017 Outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow Award from the HMS/HSDM Office for Postdoctoral Fellows. Yeh was one of eight recipients from HSDM and HMS celebrated for their achievements. Her research uses intravital imaging to study post-natal calvarial skeletal stem cells.

Floyd Dewhirst, DDs, PhD, senior member of the staff at the Forsyth Institute and professor of Oral Medicine, Infection and Immunity at HSDM, was nominated as a Fellow in the Dentistry and Oral Health Sciences from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Dewhirst, who has become a leading force behind characterizing the oral microbiome, and helped identify the diverse, genetic capability and

pathogenic potential of organisms present in the human oral cavity. His efforts have identified approximately 700 species of phylotypes of human oral bacteria that are described in the Human Oral Microbiome Database which is hosted at the Forsyth Institute.
